, i learned on the campaign trail. there's always a winner and loser. the political environment just like the business world, is highly competitive. with every campaign season there's always a new crop of start-ups. innovation incubators. and so, i guess the campaign is a little bit of an entrepreneurial showcase. i think a lot of us think we see these ads and i guess keeping the campaign is disliked a big marketing machine that spits out the ads we see on tv and the candidates are sending mail to us an e-mail to our in box and the phone calls and so forth. but if you peel back the curtain, you might find something. a something difference you find a very complex, highly detailed operation. there's a million things happening at once. there are things happening around the candidates, there are things happening around the headquarters operations, things happening in field offices. everything from where a candidate will stay, who will stand with the candidates, what site he should choose for that and how many people should come to the event and right down to the helium in the balloons an
partisan environment in the state of massachusetts. if you look at president obama's record, he has a record of not being able to work well in a partisan environment. we will have to work together to get things done and my vote will go to mitt romney because he has a record of being able to do something just like that. >> thank you so much. in addition to posting your comments and we already have a lot of them on the debate, more than 1200 comments have come in on tonight's first debate, we also now have it all up there, which is a simple "who won?" let's take a look at how things stand right now. my technology is not working. we will come back after this call. it is from abilene in illinois. >> i thought both candidates did a good job. i was a little more impressed with the president. because of that, i am getting off the fence and going with the president. i think the moderator could have exercised more control. he let romney cut in and takeover more than he should have. i found obama to be more believable and i feel that he has prevailed in spite of the legislature. the objective
you reconcile that with your voting record? >> i have a very strong record on the environment in the united states senate. [laughter] i have a record where i voted for the superfund legislation. i have a record where i voted against my president on the override of the clean water act. i have voted for the major pieces of environmental legislation that have come down and been voted on in the united states senate. this administration and i support this administration and its environmental efforts has moved in the area for the first time to deal with the ozone problem. we now have an international treaty, the treaty that is commonly referred to as the montreal treaty. for the first time we are talking about the impact of co2 to the ozone layer. that's progress with the environment. we are committed to the environment. i take my children hiking and fishing, walking in the woods, in the wilderness. believe me, we have a commit to preserving the environment. you bring up the environment, you can't help but think about the environmental policy of the governor of massachusetts. he tal
environment. you can spread by around but let's face it, in the negotiations over the past year or so, the single biggest obstacle -- optical has been republican on willingness to move significantly on taxes. if they moved on taxes, i think democrats, a number of them including the president, will move on spending and we can have a primary agreement and the lame duck session. if not, i think we go into january. what happens if we do? think of 1995. we have a government shut down. newt gingrich/bill clinton -- once the government shut down, the pressure on both sides was so intense. the pressure if we go into january will be far greater because the economic consequences and the market consequences are more significant. i think it is inconceivable that if we go into january, there won't be a solution in january or early february at the latest. there has to be a settlement, somebody will have to blink, probably both sides. i talk a little bit to people in financial markets in the york. i would think the market would react to all of this. if there is a deal in a few weeks and any deal cle
. >> there will be a lot of focus on the issues. the environment of these two candidates come together after really negative attacks, these two candidates not have much of a personal history. they have met less than five times in history. -- in person. this summer has been, as everyone knows, i am sure, a lot of at going after personal attributes. ronnie's well, his career at bain capital, and on the flip side, the obama campaign has been upset about romney not shushing supporters to question whether barack obama was born in the united states. recently, this debate over the attack in libya. romney came out and suggested that obama was sympathetic with those who attacked the embassy there. so there is all this bitterness. they're coming in with it. both men have been coached to not let that come through. mitt romney specifically, rob portman has been told to push his buttons and teach romney how not to be testy and attack obama tonight. he wants to come off as likable. >> when did you arrive in denver? how heavy spent the day today? what have you seen? >> i arrived monday. the first thing i did was
election, it is clear that the president is headed for setting an environment for this electoral map. he has a serious advantage. >> [indiscernible] >> right, mitt romney will do something tomorrow to make a seismic shift. you also engage in more localized races, state, congressional and senate. >> we are primarily focused on the presidential election appeared the goal at crossroads is to beat president obama. but we are also heavily invested in senate and house races. in a lot of ways, the other super pacs are not. we are focusing on all of the senate races, where you will see the advertising earlier on. the bigger the office, the more people pay attention earlier. >> crossroads plays this outsized role in the senate races. don't think that these two are not inclined. i am not suggesting it is nefarious. even if there is parity between the democrats and republicans alike in the presidential advertising, they are way out spending on the senate races and house races. and those have been packed. it is because of the environment, how people feel when there is billions of dollars of ad spend
not think we should make a -- divert attention to try to confront it in an external environment. continuing to engage, having areas of cooperation in energy, the development of a massive nuclear civil energy programs. we are already cooperating with the chinese. keep our markets open. but do not create a more hostile environment that is essential. is is important we keep a balance in the region. there is a line between balancing provocation and we want to stay on the side of balance and a constructive environment. >> i was surprised to hear you say that the comments made by both candidates, you used the term deplorable. i know you have endorsed mitt romney. have you had that conversation with him? abbey said i find your comments deplorable? -- have you said i find your comments deplorable? [laughter] >> i see these advertisements for the candidates are debating with each other on how to deal with the cheating of china. both used the word cheat. it may be that in china they do not understand and i am bothered by the fact that appealing to china -- it does not affect my feeling of the canada.
regulatory environment, as bank took a look at his business plan and said here is your problem -- you are asset rich and cash poor. he said i know that, if i had the cash it would not be here for a loan. he would have to over collateralize a loan by 150% under the current regulatory environment. i want him to be able to grow his business. it's a classic example of regulation killing jobs. we need to make sure we have the proper amount of legislation but not overregulation. my commercials talk about reducing spending, and powering our work force for training for jobs available and developing a comprehensive energy policy to put our people back to work, energy independence to protect our environment. >> 30 seconds to rebut. >> you have been running some of the most deceitful attack at the state has ever seen. don't try to pretend that has not been what's happening in that race. when your campaign was asked why you don't start talking about the issues, your campaign manager said it would be a senseless exercise. that's right. for linda mcmahon talking at the issues of be a senseless exer
environment, even 90 minutes with a skilled moderator, allow them to go at each other, steering the debate, that is one thing. but if it is complete free-for- all, i think the campaign would never risk it. >> in the first debate, i learned afterward, nixon was one of the smartest politicians ever to be vice president, and of course later, president. and he was the most gracious. that did not come across in the debate. why was that? no one seems to have asked that question. was he over-awed by his wealth, his tan? that is why what i want to know. why nixon did not bring that out as much as he did in the first one, in the next three. >> if i could, on the fact checking, one thing that i do that is helpful is to go to multiple fact checking organizations. go to several and get the consensus about what people have to say about the candidate's statements. >> we will go to a question from the studio. >> i have a question for professor mcilwain. i have been intrigued by your academic work, looking at how race influences the way candidates communicate with different audiences. for the first time,
didn't wait for washington nor international treaty and environment or anything like this. we just moved forward. i remember washington was never that enthusiastic about infrastructure. you know how much we are falling behind in infrastructure nationwide compared to the rest of the world. but we in california we said yes to infrastructure. and now we can see construction in schools and roads and affordable housing and other projects all over the state of california. washington said no to stem cell research. imagine, we said yes. and we invested $3 billion. as a matter of fact, right here at u.s.c. we have one of the great centers for staple-cell research, and they are drawing money for those $3 billion for their center. washington said no to our landmark climb change law. million solar roofs, list goes on and on. we said yes, yes and yes. and we moved forward. some of the most powerful solutions come from local government and also grass roots. people power. not from washington or paris or moscow or beijing. finally, i learned quickly that a post partisan way of governing is the mos
environment and repealing obamacare. these are the burdens we have got to remove. >> and is now time for closing statements. congressman kantor -- cantor goes first. >> this is a robust discussion. it is a debate that has been tougher with what is wrong with politics today. that is a rash of personal attacks on my family. as we saw, at a competitive disregard for the truth. none of these negative tax to anything to trade a job or educate a child or do anything to bring down the deficit. the thames at character assassination -- the attempt at character assassination make it hard to compromise and sit down and get something done. i think you underestimate the decency of the voters of the seventh district. i have the honor honoring been for seven years. i have every confidence that the voters will reject your-came to your campaign. this is about what kind of country we want to be. there is one that i advocated that will produce more jobs. his view is that we need to raise taxes. the fact is we all know that the unprecedented prosperity of america did not come because the government just
be great to die in to -- to dive into the protection of our environments. we will not dive into it to the level we should, and romney will not talk about how he is such a green governor in massachusetts, which definitely is a foot lot. >> tomorrow with the domestic policy debate. >> i was going to international affairs, but it is domestic policy. they are not going to discuss how we can get african- americans more jobs. they will talk in general about jobs, since we need jobs more, we should have more attention on its. >> in a sad remembrance of the 400th murder in chicago over the last couple days, we will not talk about the tie between youth unemployment numbers and how it has impacted the dropout rates and the crimes we're seeing in these urban environments. >> i would like to see an honest conversation about collective bargaining. >> i like that one. , we talk about that new small business economy, but african- americans, our economy is not a mom and pop, it is a mom or pop. we need to make sure it is addressing the mom and or pops our communities. , hate speech and its
the environment and something that was set in the debate last week. the president had the lead on energy and he said we were dealing now more than ever for gas and oil and he's right. then mr. romney came back with our bottle saying, mr. president, are drilling more for gas and oil, but it's not due to your policy. then he went on to say that because we are not drilling on federal and. why the president did not jump on that, i don't know. all the president would have to have said, was, mr. romney, do you think the american public would condone drilling in yellowstone? do you think the american public would condone drilling in yosemite? i just sat back from fly-fishing in montana and i was on federal land fly-fishing. i was on federal land where nothing is going on and i enjoyed that. i don't want to be fly-fishing next to an oil well or fracking liquid that is stored in pits that is poisonous. i just don't understand mr. romney saying we should be drilling like crazy on federal land. that just goes to show how he is uneducated about the circle of life in the natural environments. that's all i h
back dollars to new jersey in this environment. and what would you identify as the most pressing new jersey project in need of fiscal funding? >> unfortunately, these guys abuse be earmarked process. there were excessive. and of course now we are at a point with our debt problems that we cannot afford them. so i am going to fight tooth and nail -- within the confines of form and other plans that exist for people to compete. and i am going be very active around the state. we lost a big army base. people all around new jersey. sure where you were in that fight. i did not see you. we lost that base. lost those jobs. they moved to aberdeen, maryland and a sky high price tag for the american taxpayer. >> time, sir. >> that is what we have to work for. >> thank you, sir. >> look, joe, you are entitled to your opinion, but not your facts. the reality is that when the base -- i did not have the privilege at the time when that was going under, was going on. so, that is not when you cannot subscribe to me. i joined colleagues who were representing the area to be supportive. but suggesting that
defense and build highways and education. and building an environment where it is easy for business to employ people and kind of stay out of everybody's way. host: how is it doing? caller: i do not think it is doing very well when minimum wage is hitting $10 an hour in some states. that is an awful lot to employ people. some people like myself, a small businessman, it is hard for me to employ more people when i am having to pay so much for everything in the price of everything is going up. the price of fuel, electricity, food -- the price of everything is going up right now. so i do not think the government is really doing a good job. host: it in the "wall street journal" this morning, another comparison of the two candidates on the definition of patriotism. president barack obama says he wants a new economic patriotism. mitt romney caused the campaign a battle for the soul of america. host: next, louisiana, a democrat. good morning. caller: yes, i would like the government -- [no audio] host: we lost her. with apologies, let's move on to an independent in ohio. caller: good morning
political environment. but at the same time, you spent years as the democratic party chair, in some ways, being the partisan chief of the party. what would you say to virginians that would convince them that when you go to washington, you'd be not partisan and not simply a loyal lieutenant in harry reid's army. >> i will tell you two things. i served with two presidents. i serve with president bush and president obama. we did not agree on everything. i worked closely on the bush administration on a number of issues that put virginia first. railroads are being built right now largely because of president bush and his secretary of transportation and our ability to work together. we worked with the bush administration in the aftermath of the shootings at virginia tech. i will always be a partner of the nine states, whoever the president is. i also have a track record of working across lines. first, here in richmond. second, as a republican -- as a governor with republican houses. we were the best-managed state in virginia. revested for business all years i was governor, forbes magazine. tho
the president is headed towards creating an environment where he has a significant advantage. >> mitt romney will be so exceptionable tomorrow there will be a seismic shift. >> tune in. talk about next week in class. >> you engage in more localized races, congressional and senate, a bit about how you choose rarities said to have a broader >> that is a big question. we are clearly focused on the presidential election. the goal is to defeat president obama and elect a new president of heavily invested in the senate and house races. we are focused on all of them. the senate races is where you will see more of the advertising earlier on, because the bigger the office, the more people pay attention earlier. we will be engaged in a number of house races probably later on as we get closer. >> that is the other thing, a crossroads places outside role in the senate races. do not think that these are not inclinentwined. even if there was parity, the republican side, a crossroads and others, our way out spending on the senate races in house races. those all have an impact, because it is the environment
place. they set up a set just like it will look like in denver. they are used the environment. they have somebody to play the moderator and ask questions. obama does not like sound bites. they force him to give answers. they do whatever they can to simulate the debate situation. >> you quote a former chief of staff to boast -- to vice- president alkyl and joe -- al gore and joe biden. let me read some of his points. -- can you elaborate? >> sure. he is not really specifically using this advice for romney or obama, although i have no doubt many of these tips are being passed on to president obama. it is interesting. that was my first short summary of what he has to say. he went into more debt -- depth about each one of those things. impressions of the debate are formed very early. in the first half hour. a lot of the reporters will be writing their stories in the first half hour. you need to come out strong. if there is something you want to say, you have to say it right away. you suggest candidates, when they come out to the sage, right down three points they want to make. when you are w
, the environment in d.c. will be more supportive of a comprehensive immigration reform. of course, we have different views on the subject. i agree with the president's decision to exercise prosecutorial discretion. i also agree what he did for the dreamers. i hope we are able to pass the dream at. >> you are opposed? >> yes. >> but when you look at what is going on out there, the president is getting knocked on both sides. some are knocking him because they say that he deported more folks -- this administration, they say, has deported more focused than any other. >> well, the bush administration. >> we know that, since 2004,he number of border patrol agents have doubled in this country and that, president obama, he called for an increase to avert 21,000 border patrol agents. since 2007, revenue going toward border security has increased 55%. and we also see, for instance, in terms of mexicans coming to the united states, that is at net zero right now. to suggest that somehow our borders are not secure, if what that means is are they as secure as we would want them to be? we could always ma
and big oil companies, the generics began to spread. instead of being in a neutral environment, we were up 1, 2, 3, and when todd aiken express those horrific thoughts about legitimacy to forms of rape, the generics widened even more. when the republican or romping in the sea of galilee, the generics spread even more. these people have breweries that would end of medicare to fund -- these people have priorities that would end medicare. in august, the nbc/ "wall street journal"generic said it was up four. there is a direct correlation between generics and our ability to win back the house and right now is going in the right direction. host: you could hear more from that interview tomorrow at 10:00 in the morning on this network. vincent from detroit, michigan, good morning. caller: good morning, i started new job monday. host: congratulations. caller: i was previously working part-time in retail but prior to that i was in the health field and the hospital were that close. i was out of work for eight months and applied for hundreds of jobs. i just got a job so i believe the economy is gettin
environment but an energy policy that creates 5 million new jobs, a foreign policy that ends this war in iraq, a foreign policy that goes after the one mission the american public gave the president after 9/11, to get and capture or kill bin laden and to eliminate al qaeda. a policy that would in fact engage our allies in making sure that we knew we were acting on the same page and not dictating. and a policy that would reject the bush doctrine of preemption and regime change and replace it with a doctrine of prevention and cooperation and, ladies and gentlemen, this is the biggest ticket item that we have in this election. this is the most important election you will ever, ever have voted in, any of you, since 1932. and there's such stark differences, i would follow through on barack's policies because in essence, i agree with every major initiative he is suggesting. >> governor. >> and heaven forbid, yes, that would ever happen, no matter how this ends up, that that would ever happen with either party. as for disagreeing with john mccain and how our administration would work, what do you ex
be able, and security services, that would provide an environment to the citizenry to be able to express themselves politically and economically and socially, and also an armed force that would defend the territorial integrity and sovereignty of syria. this sector, armed forces, intelligence services, the national police, would be apolitical. we thought of the many challenges ahead, and there are a number of challenges we have taken. we have taken lessons learned from iraq, from libya, and we are under no illusion that there would not be some measure of chaos the day after the collapse of the assad regime treat this may include a vengeance killings, civil disturbances, leaking, and certainly it will include an instrument of reaching power to try to destabilize the situation that is already highly unstable. we took together really all of the potential challenges that we face and head, and we tried to see the possible solutions for each. luckily for us, there are many regional military councils that have endorsed the principle of civilian authority over the military. this is good news. we
